Slow and a poor loser? Sounds about right.

I haven't told this Cassel story since joining Yahoo, so here it is one more time: once while visiting some of my friends in USC back in college after a night of drinking, we ended up on some fraternity row, and my friend challenged Cassel (I had no idea who he was at the time. He was backing up Carson Palmer) to a race on the street. They made a bet, and my friend smoked him. Cassel was extremely upset and demanded a rematch (and changed his shoes). This time, my friend actually let him get a head start, and he easily caught up and beat him again. Cassel was irate (his girlfriend had to console him) and never paid up.

Well, it's hard to win a race when you drop to the ground in fetal position when somebody is gaining on you...

That's it. I've had it with Matt Cassel. This is just too much. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt because I love the Chiefs, but this is the last straw. I won't be buying tickets, i won't be buying merchandise, and I'll only watch the games on TV if we're winning until Matt Cassel is gone. This is bullshit.

This'll be an unpopular post, but what other evidence do we have that Cassel is a douche? We all despise his QB play and want him off the team, but this is literally the only story I've ever heard about him that didn't reflect positively on his character.

He's a nice guy that needs to get the **** off of our football team.

Apparently it was that he could never throw a football more than 20 yards if he lost.

Oh, wait. He welched on it, so it can't be that.

I really feel bad for the guy. He seems like a nice guy who wants to do well.

Basically, he was minding his own business holding a clipboard in New England, and then we traded for him and threw $60+ million at him and told him to go forth and conquer. Maybe we can blame him for failing, but we can't blame him for trying.

His interviews with media were what turned me off. He's never been accountable. After he has a terrible game you'll generally hear a lot of "we" have to take care of the ball and "the whole offense has to play better". Sometimes even pulls in the defense, wanting to spread accountability for his failures among a large pool, acting as if his own play was 1/53rd of the problem. He is an artist at it, passive aggressive and doesn't drop the headline bullet quote that everybody would notice, but still manages to show he takes no responsibility for his own mistakes.

Do you have any clue how heavily they edit those kinds of shows? There's a good chance that he never even made that statement, and they patched it together out of other things he said. Even if he did say it, they were influencing the things he said all night and then cherry-picked that exact phrase.

Yeah, that wasn't too great. To be fair, though, most people (myself included) would react worse than that to thousands of people showering hate onto them.

His interviews with media were what turned me off. He's never been accountable. After he has a terrible game you'll generally hear a lot of "we" have to take care of the ball and "the whole offense has to play better".

He is an artist at it, passive aggressive and doesn't drop the headline bullet quote that everybody would notice, but still manages to show he takes no responsibility for his own mistakes.

Fair enough. A part of me wonders if he was instructed to speak that way, but it would have satisfied a lot of people for him to take direct, personal responsibility for at least some of the numerous fuckups he's made.

Dude there weren't any cut away scenes they showed him being impatient then it was chefs doing their work on the show.

So no, you don't understand how heavily they edit reality shows. The editors for shows like Hell's Kitchen earn their entire salaries by collecting footage and manufacturing drama out of it. I saw that episode, too, and if the worst they can get out of Cassel is him weighing the thought of going to check on his food, then he's a goddamned saint.

No, I'm being realistic. Cassel has personality flaws, but they relate more to his confidence and leadership ability than they do his character.

No joke, I 've said this multiple occasions got railed for it too by few know it alls and fanboys.

We are talking off field stuff, and from the sideline to these type of stories dictates Cassel is a whiny bitch douchebag. which all relates to his leadership abilities too

To be fair, I thought it was pretty clear that Matt was just joking around about that. Does anyone have a clip?
